74. Bounding Defaults in Egress Models
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 11/28/2013
Authors: Steve MV Gwynne, Erica D Kuligowski, Michael Spearpoint, Enrico Ronchi
Abstract: The developers of egress models are in a difficult position. It is in their interest to develop models that are quick and easy to employ and at the same time to reduce accidental model misuse. While default values enables out-of-the-box use of mode ...

76. The Process of Verification and Validation of Building Fire Evacuation Models
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1822
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 11/21/2013
Authors: Enrico Ronchi, Erica D Kuligowski, Paul A Reneke, Richard D Peacock, Daniel Nilsson
Abstract: To date, there is no International standard on the methods and tests to assess the verification and validation (V&V) of building fire evacuation models, i.e., model testers adopt inconsistent procedures or tests designed for other model uses. For i ...

78. Dissecting Interactions Among Indoor Environmental Quality Factors
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 11/8/2013
Authors: Hal Levin, Steven J Emmerich
Abstract: Many aspects of indoor environmental quality (IEQ) and the technologies that control or otherwise affect it are interactive and often closely connected. This has important implications for the design and construction of buildings as well as for opera ...
